Auto Accident
Since being established in 1995, our firm has principally represented in jury victims. We've represented thousands and recovered millions for them. We value representing individuals hurt by truck and commercial vehicles, drunk drivers, and buses.
We have a team of dedicated attorneys and paralegals that are ready to assist you in any type of injury claim arsing from a traffic accident. We take a team approach to each client matter meaning that you wont be 'assigned' to one attorney or that your claim will not be worked on when our firm is in trial on another matter. Instead, you will be able to get answer quickly from our staff and your matter will be prosecuted quickly by our team approach.
We provide free initial case evaluations for injury victims without any obligation and we will go to see you or a family member in the hospital to answer injury claim questions.

Steve Gnau

Mr. Gnau completed pre-med studies at the University of Texas at Austin and then obtained a BBA degree from there in 1992. Next, he completed his law degree at California Western School of Law in 1995 and passed the bar exam that same year. While attending law school, Mr. Gnau worked beside many preeminent attorneys at two defense firms where some of those lawyers went on to become Superior Court judges presently on the bench. After becoming an attorney licensed in California, Mr. Gnau established his own law practice in San Diego in 1995. From the inception of his practice, Mr. Gnau has focused on helping individuals involved in personal injury claims, litigation, and complex insurance coverage issues. Over the years, his original solo-practice has grown into the Gnau & Tamez Law Group, LLP with offices in San Diego, Murrieta, Vista, and Chula Vista. Of primary importance to Mr. Gnau is for potential clients to know that he is approachable and wants to hear from them. He spends several hours every month providing free initial consultations and accident liability assessments for people just wanting to know if they have a case. Another hallmark of Mr. Gnau's law practice is the overriding need to ensure that every case is prepared for trial in contrast with other lawyers who only try to get quick and easy settlements that are too often undervalued.
